Mindfulness means “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.” - Jon Kabat Zinn (Professor of Medicine, Emeritus Stress Reduction Clinic and the Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine).

"Mindfulness helps us enjoy our life more, to find more meaning in our life and to help protect us from stress, anxiety and depression,” - Dr Craig Hassed: award-winning medical researcher with Monash University's department of general practice, and author of The Essence of Health: The Seven Pillars of Wellbeing.

Contemporary scientific research about mindfulness meditation shows measurably significant benefits to participants including less stress, less anxiety, greater focus, calm and happiness.

Price includes 6 x 1.5 hour classes, guided meditation CD, info booklet and weekly emailed articles.

Course facilitated by Karl Baker.

“I had never done meditation before and already had preconceived notions of what it would be like such as “religious and a bit airy fairy”. Surprisingly this course was the opposite. I found Karl very relatable, when he talked about our thoughts. Like a lot of people, I tend to overthink everything from past events to future, or simply beating myself up. Karl helped me to take a step back and recognise I’m not my negative thoughts and they do not define me. I now feel a sense of peace. The mediation itself is relaxing and helps you de-stress from the day’s events. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to de-stress and gain inner peace.” - Summer Mills
